is an artist's model who, along with posing
for her father, American painter
collaborated with many notable photographers of the 20th
century. In the work of
Judy Dater, one particular photo,
"Imogen and Twinka," created in Yosemite National Park,
became one of the most recognizable and iconic images
captured by an American photographer. In it, ninety-two year
Imogen Cunningham, a groundbreaking photographer in her
own right, confronts and locks gaze with Twinka, who appears
as a wood nymph frozen before her camera's lens. The image
can been seen in private and major museum collections around
the world. For three years Twinka lived with the aging
Henry Miller in his Pacific Palisades home acting
as his cook and caretaker while working as an artist's
model, posing for art students and other noted
Mary Ellen Mark,
Eikoh Hosoe, and
Ralph Gibson among others. At home
with Miller, Twinka was captivated and delighted along with
other dinnertime guests and celebrities by Miller's nightly
tales of his past exploits. Listening, she began to keep a
notebook of her version of what he said each evening.
Eventually showing him her notes, he expressed immense
enthusiasm, encouraging her to write a book. The result is a
compilation of both Miller's intimate conversations and
Twinka's memoirs about the years she spent living under his
roof and his lasting effect on her.
